Child Tax Credit payments for Ohioans

For the tax year 2021, the Child Tax Credit increased from $2,000 per qualifying child to: $3,600 for children ages 5 and under at the end of 2021. $3,000 for children ages 6 through 17 at the end of 2021.

How to Qualify:

To qualify for advance Child Tax Credit payments, spouses who filed a joint return must have:

  • Filed a 2019 or 2020 tax return and claimed the Child Tax Credit on the return; or
  • Given us your information in 2020 to receive the Economic Impact Payment using the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool
  • A main home in the United States for more than half the year (the 50 states and the District of Columbia) or file a joint return with a spouse who has a main home in the United States for more than half the year
  • A qualifying child who is under age 18 at the end of 2021 and who has a valid Social Security number
  • Made less than certain income limits.

The IRS said it will use the information provided earlier to determine qualification and automatically enroll people for advance payments.

Parents do not need to take any additional action to get advance payments.
